Internet: FLIR FX camera not connecting to WiFi

If you are experiencing difficulty connecting to your FLIR FX camera through a WiFi connection, it may be related to your WiFi settings, your network speed, the position of your router, or your FLIR FX camera settings.

To resolve your connection issue:

  • Check that the WiFi password was entered correctly.
  • Move the camera within 10 feet of the router. Once connected, move the camera to its permanent position.
  • Physical barriers and distance can reduce WiFi signal strength and create connectivity issues. Consider using a WiFi extender to increase signal strength. Click here for more information on improving WiFi performance.
  • Characters in the WiFi network name may prevent the FLIR FX camera from connecting. If applicable, change your wireless network name to contain only alphanumeric characters.
  • Check your network upload speed. Each camera requires 1Mbps upload speed for Standard video quality, and up to 2.5Mbps for High Definition.
    • Click here to download the Ookla Speedtest app and check your upload speed.
  • The WiFi router throughput speed may be inadequate to support multiple cameras. Check with your router manufacturer on the throughput speed of your router.

If you have tried the above steps and have not resolved the issue, reset your camera and reconnect to the WiFi network.

To reset your FLIR FX camera:

  1. Press and hold the REC button (FX Rec button) and the WiFi button (WiFi button) on the camera at the same time.
  2. Release when you hear three beeps.
  3. The message Your camera has been reset will display in the FLIR FX app.
